Rooms are just fine perfect for what’s needed, staff are lovely and friendly only real problem we had was you have to get up crazy early to get any breakfast, one morning we woke up and every thing had ran out and they couldn’t keep up with supply and gave up refilling so we went hungry. We then had to make sure we were down there at exactly 7am to get any food.

These hotel is one pf highly recommended na budget friendly. Located in station 1 in 5-10mins walk nasa beach kana.. we really loved how accommodating their staff and all of our requests have been provided. Simple lang yung place but if ayaw nyo ng crowded at maingay na place, maganda dito, masarap pa ung breakfast food nila na included sa booking..

We stayed for two nights at Il Mare Sakura Resort Boracay with family and relatives. We occupied four rooms in total and we had a wonderful time. The resort is strategically located at Station 1 Balabag, only 250 meters away from the white beach, where you can find the famous Willy’s Rock and Grotto. There are also many restaurants and bars within reach, making this a convenient location at an affordable price. Argean, Lee and the rest of the staff at the resort were very friendly and provided top-notch service. They greeted us warmly, helped us with our luggage, and gave us advise for any restrictions during our stay about about Boracay. They also gave us useful tips on where to go and what to do in Boracay. They were always attentive and responsive to our needs and requests. The rooms were spacious, fully air-conditioned, and clean. They had a Japanese-inspired design with comfortable beds and soft linens. The bathrooms were also well-equipped with shower facilities, slippers, and free toiletries. The rooms also had a 32-inch flat-screen cable TV, a safety box, and free WiFi access. The kids loved the resort’s indoor swimming pool, where they could splash around and have fun. The pool was clean and well-maintained, and there were enough towels and lounge chairs for everyone. The breakfast buffet was delicious and had a variety of dishes to choose from. We especially liked the Asian options such as noodles, fried fish, and kimchi. We had a memorable stay at Il Mare Sakura Resort Boracay and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Boracay. It is a family-friendly resort that offers excellent value for money. We would definitely come back here again!

Our short time at sakura has been relaxing and enjoyable. The staff were attentive and will provide assistance without being asked. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. I will certainly come back again despite not having an elevator and had to walk up 4 flights of stairs. Thank you sakura team!

I have nothing but praises for this property. Facilities and amenities maybe standard but the service is at par with that of 5 star hotels. From arrival(cold towels anf welcome drinks) to departure(booking our etrike to the airport), to daily checking the weather forecast for us. Each encouter with the staff ends witha bow, a true japanese gesture. Special mention to Lee and Argyne at Reception who have been very accommodating to our requests. The best going above and beyond and doing the extra mile experience we had was upgrading one of our rooms to a family room and early check in at 10am for 3 of the 4 rooms we booked.

Our stay in Boracay is very memorable! The hotel we stayed at is amazing. We were greeted with cold towels, complimentary drinks and big smiles from their staff. Everyone is very cheerful and hospitable. The rooms are big and spacious. Breakfast is amazing with wide variety of food served daily. Clean beach towels are provided daily along with bottled drinks per guest. It is definitely worth it!

With great delight, I remember my getaway in Boracay Islands, most especially my stay in IL Mare Sakura Resort. I wish to thank the staff again for their dedication in work. I have seen and felt their passion. Such a commendable devotion to duty! It has been a four-day, fantastically enjoyable getaway in Boracay; and as I landed in Manila airport, I already felt nostalgic of the wonders I have momentarily lived with in the Islands. There were a lot of beautiful souls I cheerfully met during my stay. From the heart, I'll always cherish the kindness and exceptional service of IL Mare Sakura Resort Boracay team, with special mention of Lee, Argean, Ramil, Rolly and all the housekeeping team.Thanks God for the life of sweet Boracay locals _ indeed, I can vouch for their goodness in heart.

Very clean. Good quiet location. Staff are really friendly, especially Lee on front desk who was so helpful and kind, always willing to assist if we needed anything. Breakfast wasn’t to our taste and very cold and there was a lot of noise in the mornings, possibly cleaners? (Room 204)

Stay: 09/19/22 - 09/22/22: The facility is better than the other same category hotels. They’re clean and well kept. The staffs are great, they are friendly, well mannered, kind, honest and helpful. If there’s something wrong in the room or any area in the hotel, just let the staffs know they will take care of it right away. They constantly care and clean the lobby. Very attentive to the needs of their clients/guests. The facility is not a 5star facility but the staff will make you feel like you are in a 5 star hotel. I highly recommend this hotel and I will come back here the next time we come back to Boracay.
